    That would probably work, but I prefer a method in which I don't have to redo the entire network setup.

    The method in the post I sent is the easiest and the one that is less error prone.  If you want to do it manually, take a look here:

    In this example, hme0 is the interface being used as the example.  You didn't mention what type of machine you are looking for help in getting the network working.  So you'll need to figure out what interface type is on the machine and replace that interface name with hme0 in the example given.  OR you can offer up what type of machine you have and we can tell you what type interface is on that machine.

    If you want the official Sun documentation, I suggest you look here:

    The above is for Solaris 10. has similar network configuration documentation for every version of Solaris.  You didn't specify which version of Solaris you are attempting this on.  The procedure isn't that much different on Solaris 9, 8, 7, etc so digging into for your version of Solaris will show very similar if not identical procedures for network setup.
